Baby Mao Strikes Again

Baby Mao strikes again.

In more ways than one. I can't believe he actually won a contest.

Yours, mortified at this truly terrible turn of events

Note to Human Slave

Human: - When you spray shaving foam under your arms instead of deodorant, I will laugh at you. However, I do not expect your stupidity to detract from your daily duties.

My breakfast WILL be served promptly tomorrow, with or without shaving foam under your fat arms.

Yours, enoying the buffoon-like entertainment that the human slave provides,

Meme for Miss Peach

I have been tagged by The Cat Realm for this charming Meme.

I should firstly like to say that I have sent my warmest wishes to Miss Peach, along with some purrs for good measure and I trust that you have done the same. Consider it an Order from the Crown.

Now, here are the rules for the Cherish Meme as written by Adan:

'Hey, everyone, this time, I decide to start this cherish meme, here are some ways (depends on which person you write), and bring our love to Miss Peach~! She always makes us know what love is!'

1. tell us what is the most sweetest warm thing you will do to your mommy (what is the sweetest thing that your kitty will do to you)

2. And, hug your mommy, tightly... (and, hug your kitty....tightly...)

3. Tag your good friend...

4. Leave your computer, and continuing hug each other...

1. The sweetest warmest thing I will do to my human is to CLAW her FAT ANKLES for NOT COOKING ME A DINNER TODAY!!! Can you BELIEVE I had to eat SACHET food!

2. I will not let go of her ankles until she tries to push me away and then I will commence bunnykicking her stupid fat arm.

3. I should like to tag Luxor, Cheysuli and the Mosaic Cats, .

4. The human is trying to leave the computer but seems to be having great difficulty because of the irate siamese cat re-attached to her ankle.

I feel all warm and fuzzy now just like the delectable Miss Peach herself!

Mwa ha ha ha ha

HRH Yao-Lin xx

On a serious note, Miss Peach - please get better soon!We are all purring for you.

Talented Tuesday

Thank you to Maggy and Zoey over at Zoolatry for recognizing my beauty and utilising it so very artistically. I am once again hugely impressed!

My day today was boring, quiet and cold. The human switched the heating off before work this morning so I was left with only my fur, several blankets, a cat bed and Baby Mao to keep me warm. *shiver*. Yet another example of the neglect I am forced to endure.

Thank you, Maggy and Zoey, for making my miserable day a little brighter.

In sleep he sang to me....

In dreams he came.....

That voice which calls to me and speaks my name....

And do I dream again for now I find.....

The Phantom of the Opera is there

Mwa ha ha ha

I trust you will appreciate my effort for the annual Halloween Contest.

Frootbat Friday

Ah, Friday - finally, the end of a long and traumatic week.

I know I look as if I am sulking in this picture. That's because I am. You would too if you stepped into my paws, trust me.

On a much more serious note, I am also LIVID after reading this article about an evil cat napper who lives in Southampton.

I believe in Karma and I know that whomever was responsible for this evil act WILL get their comeuppance.

Yours, FUMING over this evil deed

Meezer Rule Thursday

If the human orders pizza and forgets to feed you any, make her feel really guilty by scoffing leftover toppings from the pizza box.

What on EARTH do you mean, my life revolves around food? Royalty should NOT have to eat leftovers. This is a travesty!

Yours, angry and also starving

Treat on Tuesday

The wonderful Ramses has chosen ME for this award. Not because I am sweet - I prefer to think of myself as ravaged by bitterness after a lifetime of hardship. No, this award has in fact been given to me because the ever astute Ramses acknowledges my dire need for sugar in the form of different food sources.

I should very much like to pass this award on to some genuinely sweet cats:

Bounce, Lucie and Trixie



Now, I must be off, I have things to which I must attend - the human is trying to serve me boot leather (aka over cooked steak) for dinner. Disciplinary action is needed.

Ta ta for now

To my adoring fans: Thank you so much for the outpouring of sympathy yesterday. My life is hard - no - tragic! - but one simply must carry on despite these horrors.

Please, by way of my sincere appreciation, enjoy these photographs. I can only apologise that Baby Mao edged his way into the second picture - he has a habit of encroaching on my royal space on a DAILY basis, as well as you know.

I wish each and every one of you a wonderful weekend. You deserve it for recognising a Royal Martyr among cats. I salute you.

Yours, remaining both bashful and graceful

The Secret Diary of HRH Yao-Lin

On Wednesday afternoon, the Landlord came by to make an inspection of MY palace...

Apparently, the human neglected to mention that she has two cats and this is in fact a breach of her tenancy agreement.

This is my diary of the fateful events that followed.

4:00 pm the human returns - early - from work. She immediately sets about hoovering and spraying air freshener. I wait under the bed, listening to the siren-like noise of the vacuum, trembling in fear of what this change to my routine really means.

4:40 My scratching post, my toys, my clothes - all are shoved into the wardrobe with blatant disregard for MY feelings or needs. Am too horrified to cry out.

4.45 My food and my water is hidden in the cupboard. Cannot believe I am going to starve to death at the hands of one inept slave.

4.47 Am ushered into the PTU. "Why?" I cry out but am soon silenced by the dank stench of poo. Baby Mao has now joined me in my prison.

4.50 Find myself transported to the car in the driveway, a blanket hastily thrown over me. Begin wretching - the smell of poo is now unbearable. Cannot understand what is happening nor why my human is tormenting me in this way. Vow to get revenge.

4.55 Hear a knock at the door. Hear female voices, footsteps and then..nothing.

4.56 Baby Mao has fallen asleep. I lie awake, in the dark, shivering for effect...occasionally I howl but nobody hears me. Where are my slaves? Where is my food?

5.00pm Sunlight. Am carried into the house, where my belongings have miraculously been restored to their rightful place. Am released from my prison - cold, starving, tormented, traumatised. Feel like Primo Levi except furrier.

5.05 I glare at the human with hatred before tucking into my fillet steak dinner. Am disgusted by the events of today but am ravenously hungry. Shout at the human for over cooking my steak.

5.10 Retire to my bed, too distressed to speak. Ignore apologies from slave and also ignore new toys which have been purchased in an effort to assuage her guilt.

5.15 Bite the hand that pets me. Immediately feel energised.

Note from Human: Yao-Lin - you were only in the car for five minutes and I bought you steak and toys by way of an apology. Surely, there are more traumatic events that can happen in a cat's life? Please stop making me feel guilty, I feel bad enough as it is.

Taste Test on Tuesday

Did you know that many Siamese cats have a penchant for human food? I am no exception..

I must, however, admit that this lemon cake did not quite cut the mustard. It wasn't home made and it was NOT served on Wedgwood china. What is a royal cat to do?

Meezer Monday


THIS is what a royal prince has had to resort to in order to get some peace and quiet.

And still the human follows me with that bloody camera.

Yours, still managing to look regal even when asleep in a plant pot which is no easy feat I might add,

Meet Luke - Urgent Plea

This is Luke.

Now, you may be wondering what a tabby is doing on my website. Well, the human has insisted I post about this Luke character - apparently he is in need of a home. I am miffed, to say the least - I had plans to talk endlessly about myself today.

Anyway, due to an unforeseen change of plans, Luke is in urgent need of a very loving forever home as soon as possible. His human will shortly be travelling to Australia for a year and the arrangements she had made for Luke's care have suddenly fallen through.

The good news is that Luke is free to a VERY LOVING home.

Here is some information about the little tiger:

Name: Luke

Age: 1 yr old (d.o.b 23/09/06)

Male Cat –. Owners are going to Australia for a year and he is in need of a good and loving new home.

Slim/medium sized, short hair tabby with white paws and white chest – very good looking cat with beautiful markings

Luke has a lovely temperament and plenty of character. He’s very healthy, strong and friendly. His main hobbies are going outside in the sunshine with the other cats, eating, sleeping, playing and his most favourite thing is having lots of cuddles and attention.

Although Luke enjoys playing outside, he is very good at not bringing other animals in. On very rare occasions he has brought a toad or a shrew home with him. However he is partial to the odd leaf!

Luke can be frightened of loud children and loud noises and he doesn’t like the rain!

Luke is fully litter trained but as long as he can come in and out of the house freely, he will not use it.

Luke is neutered and is fully up to date with his vaccines.

His human isn't sure but thinks he may have some Siamese or Bengal cat in him. He looks a bit frootbattish to me and his markings remind me of Mr Zenith.

Obviously, Luke is currently based on the Isle of Wight.

Do you, or someone you know think you can offer a loving home to this little chap?

Please email yao-lin-squashy at hotmail dot co dot uk if you think you can help!

Spread the word!

Now, is it time to talk about me yet?

Desktop Meme

I have today been tagged by both The Cat Realm and Kellie the Orange Cat for the desktop meme.

As you can see from this desktop, the human has MY face adorning the computer at ALL times. Whilst this particular photo is spectacularly dashing, it also serves to remind all who are in the vicinity that I AM WATCHING!! If you biggify, you can see how Sims obsessed my human really is. It is quite sad.

Here are the meme rules:

Upon receiving this tag, immediately perform a screen capture of your desktop.It is best that no icons be deleted before the screen capture so as to add to the element of fun. Here’s how you can do a screen capture:

2.Open a graphics program (like Picture Manager, Paint, or Photoshop) and doing a Paste (CTRL + V). If you wish, you can “edit” the image before saving it.

3.Post the picture on your blog. You can also give a short explanation on the look of your desktop if you want. You can explain why you prefer such a look or why it is full of icons. Things like that.

An inconspicuous box.....

Containing a model of me! The human has at last immortalised my beauty. Notice the photograph of me - one could argue it is a shrine to a royal prince.

I think, however, that Baby Mao is confused! Mwa ha ha.
